When Google APAC decided to launch their Women Entrepreneurs on the Web (WEoW) programme following its success earlier this year in India, they decided to partner with a local organisation to help build a community of diverse-led businesses by providing them with the tools, skills and training needed to succeed. The Athena Network Singapore is delighted to have been approached by Google APAC to make the programme a huge success in Singapore.
This partner-led initiative will commence in Singapore in May 2012 and is driven by Women@Google to develop external networks and support women through digital media programmes.
In perfect alignment with The Athena Network’s aims of enabling success for its members through training and development, the Women Entrepreneurs on the Web’s 5 month programme includes practical training sessions using Google’s suite of tools combined with a variety of Athena-led topics relevant to small businesses.
The initiative in India has seen more than 300 female executives and entrepreneurs sign up for this groundbreaking programme to date. Watch the video about the India programme.
The programme objectives include:
- Maximise the online presence of local businesses through various online tools
- 5 circle programme to ensure a targeted, sustainable and comprehensive platform for businesses to grow
- Build a strong network of community to provide support for businesses
The WEoW programme is open to all female business owners, professionals and entrepreneurs in Singapore who wish to develop their business skills as well as being part of a growing global community of successful women to leverage technology to enhance their business.
We are very excited about this partnership which will be of immense value and benefit to all Athena Members!
